It is upon us once again. The Olympic Games have begun, which means the Ravellenic Games have also started. As of two hours ago, we can cast-on our projects. I am not very hardcore, and haven’t started my project just yet. You know, there’s that pesky little thing called a day job. But sometime before lunchtime I might cast-on all 224 stitches of my project.
It will theoretically be my rehearsal dinner dress, or maybe just a pretty dress that I can wear any time. I am using stash yarn (!), Rowan Milk Cotton DK in Barley Sugar. I did my swatch early like a good knitter.
I kind of wish it was in “white” white, but that’s okay.
I think I’ll be able to finish it in the 17 days of the Winter Olympics. In my mind it is going to be a snap, but I probably need to be more realistic. I knew I should have waited to cast on a new sweater until after the Games, but I was too eager, and now I have a new Svalbard in progress that I am going to have to put aside for a couple weeks. It is almost sad how much of a monogamous knitter I am!
Are you starting anything for the Ravellenic Games? I’m not joining a team or anything, just doing my own thing this year. You?
